1 How jubilant and clear they ring
Those joyous Easter bells,
As to and fro their great tongues swing
How sweet their music swells,
The gentle breezes catch the tones,
And waft them far and near,
Of hope and comfort do they speak
Unto the list’ning ear.

Refrain:
Jubilate, Hear as they gently swing,
Jubilate, Jesus Christ forevermore is King.
Jubilate, Hear as they gently swing,
Jubilate, Christ fore’er is King.

2 How cheerily and blithe they ring
Those gladsome Easter bells,
As to and fro their great tongues swing
Of love their music tells.
The Father sent His only Son
From realms of bliss on high,
Upon the Mount of Calvary
For sinful men to die. [Refrain]

3 How merrily and gaily ring
Those happy Easter bells,
As to and fro their great tongues swing
How clear their music sells.
The grave could not enchain our King,
Death must yield up its prey,
The Victor over every foe,
Christ Jesus rose today. [Refrain]
